Chapter Summary

The discussion of migration and integration policies in the European Union must be placed within its historical context. In order to engage in a comprehensive analysis of migration law and policies in Europe in the 21st Century, an understanding of the development and composition of migration flows since the Second World War, and their political and societal implications, is indispensable. Therefore, this chapter provides a historical overview of European migration patterns since the Second World War, with a particular emphasis on Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and the United Kingdom. This is followed by a description of the transformation of policies towards immigrants in these five countries over the last few decades.

Keywords: Denmark; European migration patterns; Germany; Netherlands; Second World War; Sweden; United Kingdom
